The aim of the article is to identify structures of (fictional and nonfictional) texts that determine their cognitive value. I argue that the cognitive relevance of a text is too often reduced to its communicating information. The cognitive impact of a (fictional as well as nonfictional) text can also, as I try to show, lie in its imparting knowledge that is not explicitly contained in the text as well as in training capacities that enable the reader to acquire new knowledge.

Abstract

The aim of the article is to identify structures of (fictional and nonfictional) texts that determine their cognitive value. I argue that the cognitive relevance of a text is too often reduced to its communicating information. The cognitive impact of a (fictional as well as nonfictional) text can also, as I try to show, lie in its imparting knowledge that is not explicitly contained in the text as well as in training capacities that enable the reader to acquire new knowledge.
